Now is the time to start planning your spring garden! If you’re looking for inspiration, then allow us to help. Here are some simple ideas to improve upon your yard.
Spruce up what you have
If you like what you already own but it’s starting to look a little rough, consider sprucing it up rather than tossing it out. Spring weather is great for repainting furniture and cleaning pots. You can take this time to sort through and discard anything that is unsalvageable and then prepare a shopping and to do list for the next few weeks.
Add some plants
Given the fickle nature of spring weather, you need to be picky about the plants you choose. Look for species that will persevere through a bit of chill and that are able to handle heavy spring rains.
A DIY firepit
It might sound complicated, but there are dozens of guides to making your own firepit and depending on the size, can take less than an hour. Firepits are a nice aesthetic feature and provide a picturesque source of warmth for chilly spring nights and later in the fall.
To get more out of your firepit, create a solid cover for it so that it can be used as a table during the summer.
Focus on lighting
During the spring, daylight is still relatively short, creating a need for quality lighting. Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy your garden late at night?
Solar LED options are currently quite popular, including string lights that bring about a youthful ambiance. Look into pathway lighting and spotlights that help focus attention on your favorite aspects of the garden as well.
Add something unexpected
From quirky garden sculptures to outdoor curtains, an unexpected feature will bring an element of fun and originality to your outdoor space. Think outside the box and browse for something unique that fits with your personality and overall theme.
